Virtual special issue on EDKCON 2022 - physics and modelling of nanoelectronics

Published 17 September, 2022

Current progress in semiconductors means nanometre-scaled devices of various dimensions, geometries and complicated materials are now being used in modern central processing units, creating faster operation speeds and greater memory capabilities. In particular, nanoscale MOSFETs (metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistors) are playing a pivotal role in realising the next-generation of processors, in which novel architectures are proposed to reduce the short-channel effect. But before these devices are fabricated, it is important to model and simulate their structures to understand their electrical and optoelectronic properties.

The 2022 IEEE Electron Devices Society Conference (EDKCON 2022) will be held in The Science City, Kolkata, India, on 26/27 November 2022. Organised by the IEEE EDS Kolkata Chapter, the event is expected to bring together researchers, educators, students from across academia, government, industry, and non-governmental organisations to discuss, share and promote current works and recent accomplishments across all aspects of electron devices and circuits.

Manuscript submissions for EDKCON 2022 are now open. Event organisers are interested in original, unpublished manuscripts with a keen focus on theoretical concepts and experimental research on the fabrication and characterisation, modelling, analytical and numerical simulations of these devices. Submissions should be made through the conference website. The Guest Editors for this virtual special issue (VSI) will then invite selected authors to submit extended versions of their papers for potential inclusion in this issue. These manuscripts will undergo the same peer review as a regular journal submission, and accepted manuscripts will feature in the VSI.

Topics covered:

  • Computational nanoelectronics and photonics
  • Quantum well, quantum wire, quantum dot, superlattice
  • Modelling and simulation of nanoscale devices
  • Design, fabrication and characterisation of novel transistors
  • Emerging non-CMOS devices
  • Modelling of quantum-mechanical devices
  • Physics and modelling of submicron microelectronic devices
  • High-frequency device simulation

Important deadlines:

  • Virtual special issue submission deadline: 31 January 2023

Submission instructions:

  • Conference paper submissionsshould be made through the conference website.
  • Submissions to this virtual special issue will be by invitation only -submission details will be shared with the invite.
